A DUMP, BUT I SURVIVED ... MADE DO.
Posted Oct 23, 2016 on Hotels
This was a layover point en route on the PA Turnpike from New Jersey to Pittsburgh. My first impression of the lobby was very good. My first impression of the room was the complete opposite. For one, the bed pillows had no pillowcases. So, I went to Target and got myself some. The bathroom (toilet & tub/shower) was just plain GROSS! My room was near a heavily traveled truck route, i.e., noisy. If I hadn't been locked into a reservation, I would have gone elsewhere ... but I managed to survive with some creative improvising (such as the pillowcases) and slept okay - much to my surprise! There really is no excuse for the shabbiness that I encountered, though. Oh yes, it was a smoking room even though I'd specifically requested a non-smoking room, but I wasn't up for any kind of conflict that day and let it go.
